Tassajara Dinners & DessertsBook - 2009
In Tassajara: Dinner & Desserts, readers will not only find recipes filled with the flavor of Zen practice but also stories from past guest cooks, such as Deborah Madison, Ed Brown, Gloria Lee, and many others, whose calm and peaceful minds were truly tested behind the doors of the Tassajara kitchen, whose monastic kitchen differs from a normal restaurant kitchen in that the activity of preparing the food is understood to be spiritual practice. The Tassajara Zen Mountain Center teaches that every aspect of one's day can be lived with mindfulness—even food preparations and choices of what we eat.
A FEW OF THE FIFTY RECIPES INCLUDE:
Frittata with Caramelized Onions, Goat Cheese, and Sage
Coconut Curry with Mixed Vegetables
Sweet Tapioca Soup with Honeydew
Ricotta Chevre with Ginger Berry Compote
